    Is there a way to get that spring (pictured in your hand) back in securely? And if so will it hold tension enough to push the jockey wheels? if yes to both, then I know at least one way to make it work, you may need to buy longer limit screws however. (cheap from hardware store)
    no chain no gain.

    I don't think I can get it back in securely, that is the part that is broken. I was hoping to use it without the spring somehow. but now that I think about it I need the spring to create the tension... sorry for being such a newb.
